A Free Industrial Zone undertaking is excluded from benefit charge, property expense and worth included duty (VAT). Merchandise created inside a free mechanical zone are likewise absolved from import charge.
In any case, when bringing products from a free modern Free Trade Zone Kutaisi to another piece of Georgia, the import duty is 4%. As indicated by the present enactment, a financial specialist can just rent the endeavor situated on the domain of the FIZ, since the speculator does not have the legitimate right of possession (for the period that the FIZ was made for), since it diminishes its interests.
There are a few factors that clarify why free modern zones are not as fruitful in Georgia as the administration trusted they would be. The primary factor is that Georgia has a liberal tax collection framework all things considered, and conceding endeavor licenses and allows is a straightforward strategy, which implies that FIZs aren’t especially appealing. Also, Georgia as of now has fruitful free financial zones in the area, including neighboring Turkey, which makes it harder to contend with. It ought to be noticed that the foundation of the first FIZs harmonized with the period following the 2008 August War and the world monetary emergency, which ended up being one of the principle elements impeding the improvement of FIZs in Georgia.
The Kutaisi Free Industrial Zone
The Kutaisi FIZ was set up in 2009 on the region of the previous Extensive Development Zone (300 ha) for the time of 99 years. The coordinator of the Poti FIZ was the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority – RAKIA Georgia Free Industrial Zone.
In 2016, the Arab speculator RAKIA passed 85% of the portions of Poti FIZ to the State. The announced purpose behind moving the offers to the state was RAKIA’s inability to satisfy its commitments, for which the court forced a punishment on the organization. Rather than paying the punishment, RAKIA chose to surrender 85% of its offers.
